"The Lord chooses the lowly."

"For he has looked upon the lowliness of his handmaid."  ~Luke 1:48

"Mary was filled with joy that she, a lowly maiden in whom no one foresaw greatness, was chosen by God to serve him. It is of prime importance that all who are given some task in the name of the Lord regard themselves as the most humble and lowly of all – as those of whom nobody expects anything. The Lord chooses the lowly. And the lowly he chooses should be sure never to forget that this is the sheer unearned grace of God, granted to sinners who know they do not measure up as his servants."  ~Johann Christoph Blumhardt

Dear Lord, may I always rejoice to be Your unworthy servant.  Amen.
